Here you’ll find my musings on crafting, and things handmade… places and travel…. and design. I’m a mom, with grown kids. I’m also a grandmother, to a beautiful and brilliant granddaughter, that I’ll refer to as “Bug” on my post. I live in Florida with my wonderful husband, I’ll refer to as “PC” – my prince charming, and my personal computer wizard.
I’ve been a Montessori Teacher for most of my working career. I recently changed directions and began working as a newborn photographer. Currently, I’m taking a year off, and enjoying it! However, I still love the Montessori philosophy on education, design and life. In fact, designing Montessori home environments for children has recently become one of my favorite pastimes – along with photography, practicing yoga, walking on the beach and creating.
Why I blog:
While I’m figuring out what being semi-retired is all about, I decided to create a blog, after being so inspired by the other fantastically creative blogs out there. I now have time to do things like sewing, which actually is something I haven’t done for over 20 years – when I was in my thirties (yikes!). I love the process of learning, creating and sharing. I also enjoy the sense of community I’ve begun to feel with my blogging family.
One last note on the name of my blog, pringle potamus: The first part was a family name my dad gave me when I was a child. The second part was something my younger sister graciously added…ha…I decided to bring it back, and go with it for my blog name. Maybe because it represented my first project – the knitted knotted baby hat, or maybe because it was a good reminder of my dad’s memory.
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy!
